Thinking of You

A friend of mine asked me to make a 'Thinking of You' card so this is what I came up with. I'm always nervous when people ask me to make something to order without specifying exactly what they want. Taste is all subjective after all. Luckily she liked it so that was good.

The background is embossed with a Sizzex Daisy embossing folder. And the ric rac ribbon I applied with little dots of glossy accents - there is no way that is ever going to fall off. That's the great thing about glossy accents - as well as an accent it is also a brilliant glue.

The bird is from Stampin Up. I coloured it with water colour pencils, it looked nice but it needed an extra lift. So I used a clear Versamark pen to make the image nice and wet so I could apply clear embossing powder over it. And look how nice and shiny it looks once I'd melted the powder.

Yummy, I love that glasssy look.

Thanks for stopping by ...

Such a great commissioned card! I love the embossed background and that touch of yellow from the ricrac is perfect, not to mention the glossy bird! Your friend will love this, Liz!
